San Dimas, CA- Blake Terry (SR/Modesto, CA) shot a "smooth like butter" 3-ptr taking the game on Monday with the most incredible ending in LPC basketball history. Life Pacific College Warriors (13-6, 6-0) left the UC Santa Cruz Banana Slugs (10-11) in the dust winning the game with one play.
Half 1 - Warriors stay dominant in the first half, leading at one point by 12 points. Blake Terry and James Noble (JR/Los Alamitos, CA) were able to make use of free throws shooting 7-7 and 6-6 respectively. LPC end the half 8 points up over UCSC (30-38).
Half 2 - The Banana Slugs stepped up their game for the second half bringing a tied game within 5 minutes (40-40). Both teams pushed to high gear and tied up (47-47) three minutes later. The Slugs pulled away eventually leading by 8 points (58-50) at 8:57. At 9 seconds left the game was tied (64-64). Slugs took a layup and were 2 points up (64-66). That's when the miraculous happened.
The score was 64-66, Life Pacific had just taken a timeout. 2 seconds left in the game and everyone was on the edge of their seats. #33 Edgardo Campos (JR/Covina, CA) lobs the ball to #12 James Noble who in mid-air sends it to #21 Blake Terry. Terry doesn't waste time to find a shot; he shoots it from 35 ft and it sinks right in! Nothing but beautiful net. The crowd stormed the court in an exhilarating frenzy to celebrate the Warriors 67-66 victory!
